Well, no, not really. I was wondering a bit since no mention was made, at least iniitally. But, I should have known better :oops:

You have seen my prints and also the amount of burning in I do and I think you will agree that the tonality is good with highlights that sing. I think that the Stop Clock Pro compensating fStop timer complete with drydown facilities as well, is the best piece of equipment in my darkroom, but I would say that because some of the features were included at my request.
You are of course correct. I did think about that but as usual, only after my message was submitted. :-) I'll stick with my current timer for now - I use percentages for determining burn-in times, so I'm already using f/stop printing, in a manner of speaking.
